Golden Globe Nominations 2015

IMG_0159-2.JPG

The Hollywood Foreign Press tries their darnedest to not be compared to the Oscars. They like to think outside of the stuffy Oscar party. They proved that this morning with some of their nominations.

You can use the Globe nominations to solidify what we already know, but they rarely change the course of the Oscar nominations. What the Globes do is create a platform for the actors to try out their Oscar speeches. A good acceptance speech will make them like you, really like you. The 6000 Oscar voters are voting for the “it”‘person that they just plain old like.

-Birdman leads with 7 Golden Globe noms.

-Jennifer Aniston gets more love for Cake. Up until her SAG nomination this week, the Oscar pundits said “no way”. She is clearly gaining some momentum.

-Nothing for Unbroken. The Angelina Jolie directed film that has been predicted to win Best Picture since the day after last years Oscars. Never predict a movie for Best Picture UNTIL IT HAS BEEN SEEN!

-The HFP wants the big stars at their ceremony. This explains some nominations like Amy Adams for Big Eyes and Meryl Streep for Into the Woods. That is why most predicted Unbroken to get a few nominations. They always want Angelina Jolie there.
